Our campus includes a large workshop-area.  GHSE offers educational qualification ranging from a “Hauptschulabschluss” (certificate of secondary education) up to the “Abitur” (general qualification for university entrance) and is also a vocational college within the German dual education system.  There are currently around 2100 enrolled students at GHSE. 45% of them attend the “Berufsschule” (vocational college).   Around 16% are found in the applied social sciences field. The rest is distributed
among other areas such as care-giving, information technology, management, mechatronics and several other fields.
